She further reported that she got pregnant for her father three times of which her father took her to a nurse where those pregnancies were aborted.
After the third abortion, the suspect did family planning for her so as not to get pregnant any longer.
Having realized that her father is all out to ruin her life, she ran away from the house and reported to an NGO ‘‘Advocacy For Children And Vulnerable Persons Network’’ consequent upon which she was taken to Owode-Egbado police station to complain.
Upon the report, the DPO Owode-Egbado division, SP Olabisi Elebute led her detectives to the pastor’s house where he was promptly arrested.
